Alternative Fuels Update

Source: Opec 9/16/2008, Location: Asia

Thailand started selling ethanol blended gasoline (E85) last August as a first step toward biofuels. The new gasoline is heavily subsidized as the tag price is 48% lower than normal gasoline. There are not many vehicles that run on E85, but the number is expected to grow quickly should the government continue to subsidize the new product. Despite the estimated 11% increase in sugarcane crop this year in Brazil, most of it will go to produce biofuel which should put further pressure on international food prices. Biofuel has been seen as a major cause behind Asia’s deforestation and food price increases.
